Tanner Hall is one of the most dominant forces in Winter X history. The Kalispell, Montana, native medaled for nine straight years in Aspen, and the only thing that slowed his streak were a number of ill-timed injuries. Tanner won't be competing this year, but who knows what the future holds for the man who redefined an entire discipline. And he's here for your questions. Fire away.
Tanner! you are an inspiration, I love your style and I hope you'll be competing next xgames :)peace

What advice can YOU give to a beginner in the park who wants to clear his 360 by the end of the season but is still working on clearing a 180?

so tanner hall can you tell me anything about spending the winter in vail next year how is
STAY AWAY FROM THE VAIL POLICE AND THE FUBAR. THAT'S WHAT I THINK OF VAIL.
Tanner, I know it probably kills you to watch these guys rockin out tonight. So my question is, Does watching this give you some intel of what you're going to have to do to be competitive next year? And I know you're coming off injuries, After all you've been through how do you find the drive to stay competitive?
IT DEFINITELY GIVES ME INSIGHT INTO WHAT I HAVE TO DO NEXT YEAR TO COME BACK AND BE COMPETITIVE, AND THE DRIVE HAS ALWAYS BEEN IN ME TO STAY COMPETITIVE NO MATTER WHAT. IT COMES BACK THE SAME TIME EVERY YEAR AND HAUNTS ME.
If you could be out there would you be takin the gold home?
where would u say to live for the winter
Tanner--much respect to you. I'm 6'3"; 200 lbs. I ride a 184 twin tip Rossi scratch BC from a few years ago. I really want to get a rockered ski, like the JJ--so my question is--should I add a few centimeters to a rockered ski?
DEFINITELY, AND ARMADA IS COMING OUT WITH A 195 JJ, SO THAT SHOULD BE PERFECT FOR YOU.
What's up Tanner! Good to see you getting healthy again! I know with all your past injuries and the one of late, How hard is it to watch on the sidelines an event you helped put on the map? And do you have plans to make a come back and storm Winter X Slope and Pipe?
IT'S DEFINITELY TOUGH, BUT ON THE OTHER HAND, I'M REALLY PROUD OF ALL THE ATHLETES AND HOW FAR THE SPORT HAS COME, AND I DEFINITELY HAVE PLANS TO COME BACK NEXT YEAR.
hows the slopes today or should i say pipes today are they messy thanks willie
EVERYTHING'S CLEAN MAN, EVERYTHING'S CLEAN.
Where is your favorite place to ride?
I rock you new goggles the tanner hall crowbar with rasta and the lions great goggles and make seeing in white out easyer
GIVE THANKS FOR THE SUPPORT.
Tanner, is it harder to land backwards or go up in the air backwards in the pipe
IT'S HARDER TO TAKE OFF BACKWARDS FOR SURE.
DUNCAN'S SWITCH STRAIGHT AIR HAS BEEN THE BEST TRICK OF THE NIGHT. HE'S THE ONLY ONE DOING IT.
You are a thug, can you tell me how to ski like one?
I'M NOT REALLY A THUG, AND JUST CREATE YOUR OWN STYLE. DON'T WORRY ABOUT LOOKING LIKE TOM WALLISCH.
These alley oop 3's are taking everyone down, is it possible to do this trick with so much air? I feel it's more of a speed/tempo trick.
YOU CAN DEFINITELY DO, IT'S JUST ONE OF THE HARDEST TRICKS TO CONTROL AND LAND HIGH TRANNY.
When you started park skiing, what did you do? Jumps, boxes and rails or all?
ALL OF THEM. EVERYTHING WAS TOO MUCH FUN.
What do you think about Shaun White not Qualifying for Slopestyle?
ESPN MUST BE KICKING THEMSELVES.
when you said "BUT NOT JUST AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PIPE" who are you singling out?
NOBODY. IT'S HARDER TO INCORPORATE SWITCH IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR RUN THAN IT IS AT THE BOTTOM.
we love you tanner ! IDOLO !
THANKS SO MUCH.
Lions, Tigers, or Bears?
Stoked you'll be back! I know you'll put your own sick twist on the current tricks and make it yours! With that, I can't wait for this time next year! Stay healthy, I'll be rootin for ya! Much love.
CAUSE WE GOT IT LIKE THAT.

I saw one of your sessions in the british columbia pow that was so awesome in the video when you looked back you looked surprised you pulled it off.....did u not rlz what u skiid over was insane!! or was it nothing for u??
SOMETIMES I CAN SURPRISE MYSELF. AND THOSE ARE ALWAYS FUN TIMES.

JUST STAY ON A HEALTHY AND POSITIVE PATH.
How do you ski when the powder is too deep and a lion is in the way
DUMONT JUST LAID IT DOWN.
What's the one trick that a rider is rumored to throw that hasn't been thrown in competition yet.
I DON'T EVEN KNOW THE ANSWER TO THAT.
Taner, Is Simon Shaken up from his crash? or is he fine? Oh, And did Simon Break his ski clasp on his skis? My bro and i are in an arguement of that.
SIMON IS FINE. HE JUST LAID IT DOWN.
